3 Myths About Assisted Living Senior Care You Shouldn't Believe, Freedom, Wisconsin

For many older adults, spending their golden years at a senior care facility is highly recommended. Assisted living provides endless opportunities for elderly individuals to socialize, pursue new and lifelong hobbies, and enjoy leisurely pursuits without worrying about house or yard work. Unfortunately, though, there are some common misconceptions about these communities that may deter potential residents. Knowing the truth will ensure your loved one gets the care and quality of life they deserve. 

Disproving Myths About Assisted Senior Care

1. Seniors Lose Their Privacy & Independence

Retirement home residents have their choice of a variety of spacious apartments that are complete with private entrances, just like any other dwelling. These living spaces can be completely customized to suit their tastes and feel like home, whether that means bringing in personal furniture or hanging artwork.

2. Personal Hobbies Can’t Be Pursuedsenior-care-freedom-wi

Life at assisted living homes means seniors have more recreational activities to choose from than when they were living on their own. Many of these communities offer on-going calendars filled with numerous activities. These may include everything from fitness classes and gardening programs to poker nights and book clubs.

3. Residents Get Lonely

Making friends as an older adult will be easy for your loved one when they live in a senior care facility. Retirement homes provide endless opportunities to develop close relationships. These bonds can be formed while having lunch, enjoying a movie night, or during a group outing. Maintaining a social life will also be much easier, since all their friends will live right next door.
